After earning its first victory in the final stop of a four-game trek through Western Canada, Carolina surrendered 10 goals in losses at Philadelphia and Detroit.

The Rangers have played five of their first seven contests on home ice and are riding a three-game winning streak. New York erased an early two-goal deficit in a 5-2 win over Boston on Wednesday.

Offseason acquisition Brandon Pirri, who scored 22 goals in 49 games with Florida in 2014-15, sparked New York’s comeback against Boston with a pair of tallies to lift his season total to four.

Hurricanes C Victor Rask has scored in every game, the fifth-longest point streak to start a season in club history.

Carolina set an unwanted tone right out of the game, blowing three-goal leads in each of its first two games in overtime losses at Winnipeg and Vancouver.
